Upcycled Home Decor

Hi there,

I am back with an upcycled project. The monthly challenge of Graphic45 as well as 'More Than Words' Monthly challenge were perfect for me to create this project.

Today I am sharing how I upcycled a cake base. I had kept this base for a long time to create a wall hanging or try out a Mixed media project, and this challenge was an opportunity to get me going.

I had the 'Nature's sketch book' paper pack, and this was the chance to fussy cut and I was on a spree of cutting butterflies. Who doesn't love butterflies and I couldn't stop myself. :) You will see for yourself in my final project.

This is the before pic..

and finally I added a stand at the back...

and my show piece is ready!!

Most of the paper used are scraps - the black cardstock used to cover edges, the chip board for making stand and the strips of pattern paper. A lot of fussy cutting from various G45 papers, hand made flowers, pearls and rhinestones and chipboards finished the project.

Hope you liked my creation. Linking this to the following challenge:
